3 Ways to Get Your Leafy Greens

It’s one of the most popular nutrition and diet tips out there: Eat more leafy green vegetables.  Whereas some diet advice in the media is not always correct (see my previous Diet Quiz I [1], Diet Quiz II [2] to dispel some nutrition myths!), this recommendation is actually legitimate.  Leafy greens are not only nutritious, loaded with vitamin A, vitamin K, and potassium, but when prepared the healthy way, they’re incredibly low-calorie and nutrient-dense!


We can all benefit from including more leafy greens in our diets, but if you’ve never actually tried to cook any greens, it can be a little daunting to figure out how to use them.  I’ll profile 3 popular leafy greens below, Kale, Chard, and Spinach, and offer you quick and easy ways to prepare them, even for those of us with busy lifestyles!
